I posted earlier this weekend that National Treasures is set to go live this week. Tomorrow we should see a bigger flood of singles start to pop up, as long as the allocations work out correctly. I would guess that many of the boxes purchased at pre-sale prices may end up being sold as sealed, as the price has jumped significantly. However, with the case break from Panini that was posted on their site today, maybe that price will come down.
Here are the first few singles to pop up:
2012 National Treasures Robert Griffin III Auto Dual Relic /49 – I really like the way these cards look, even though they feature those horrible event used football swatches. The clean design and extra large photos are quite nice.
2012 National Treasures Bernie Kosar Jersey Auto /15 – Not the best player, but the design is great. I love the way these cards look, but its hard to get past sticker autos in a pack of cards that costs 600+ dollars.
2012 National Treasures Michael Robinson Jumbo Swatch – 600 dollar product, event used jersey from a game that no one cares about, player that no one cares about. What a disgrace. Par for the course though, the NT checklist is bloated as hell.
As more cards are posted, ill have more to talk about. I have the distinct feeling that people are going to realize quickly that there arent many products out there that can justify such a high price tag without 100% on card autos and a rookie patch auto per box. Even then, its difficult.
